OK, we all know Isiah has no idea what the f he is doing (etc.). Jeffries' agent apparently turned down a 6-year deal with Washington for $33MM. Rumor is that Jeffries prefers to be in NY for the endorsement deals. Jared Jeffries, endorsement deals. Um, OK, I guess there is SO much money in NYC that you have to have SOMEONE endorse your products, but my goodness gracious.....Which bring me more to my more salient point -- Jared Jeffries sucks. He is a 6 point a game scorer who struggles to shoot 58% from the line. Yes, he can catch the ball on the break and lay it in the basket. But he isn't teamed with Steve Nash, he is teamed with Marbury/Francis/Crawford for the foreseeable future. He won't be seeing the ball. I have seen NYC blogs where (obviously desperate) Knicks fans tout this as the signing of a great defender who guarded LeBron James one-on-one in the playoffs. A) Jeffries' defensive stats in his career are about equal to those of Mike Dunleavy, Jr.; B) Recall that the Cavs WON the Wizards series b/c the Wiz absolutely could not guard LeBron and he went off for something like 35 a night! Being assigned to a good player in close games does not make you a good defender, it says a lot about either your coach or other available options (Arenas/Jamison anyone?). Jeffries' 2006 stats compare unfavorably to the 2006 stats of Kwame Brown and Mike Dunleavy has had a FAR better career (see below). If you want a crappy, overpaid player, why not go out and get one of those (clearly available) guys? Another just ridiculous Isiah signing.
